Previous data on the prevalence of olfactory dysfunction in Parkinson's disease (PD) range from 45% to 90%. The present multicenter study aimed to provide data on the prevalence of smell loss in a large sample of PD patients from three independent populations. Olfactory sensitivity was tested in 400 patients from Australia, Germany, and The Netherlands by(More)
Olfactory dysfunction is a prominent symptom in Parkinson's disease (PD) and found in about 70-100% of patients. In earlier studies significant loss of olfactory function seemed to be unrelated to disease duration, did not correlate with motor function, and was uninfluenced by antiparkinsonian medication. We suggest that the increase of dopaminergic cells(More)
Idiopathic Parkinson's disease (IPD) is a neurodegenerative disorder of unknown aetiology. Several antigens have been associated with IPD using serological methods. We systematically analysed HLA class I and II alleles in 45 German Caucasian IPD patients using sequence-specific oligonucleotides and sequence-specific primer technology. Applying Bonferroni(More)

1. Bei den höheren Dipteren (angefangen mit den Asiloidea) ist das 9. Abdominaltergit nicht mehr nachweisbar und wahrscheinlich mit dem 10. Tergit verschmolzen. Ferner sind die Cerci hier nur eingliedrig (bei den Tabanoidea dagegen zweigliedrig). 2. Die Differenzierung von Prä- und Postabdomen fehlt bei Glossina, ist also nicht fur alle höheren Dipteren(More)
The treatment of idiopathic Parkinson's disease becomes rather difficult if levodopa-induced late complications such as motor fluctuations or dyskinesias occur. This prospective and open study shows that an add-on therapy with entacapone can significantly lower wearing-off and end-of-dose akinesia. This treatment is well tolerated and easy to perform.

We report a 52-year-old patient with Miller Fisher syndrome and discuss Wernicke's encephalopathy as one important differential diagnosis. This article focuses on diagnostic criteria and possible nosological relations between Miller Fisher syndrome, Guillain-Barré syndrome with ophthalmoplegia, Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis, and acute(More)
